"This challenging integrative study offers some clever analytical insights. It includes thorough notes and a useful index."
"Wallace's eye-opening (and ear-dilating) accomplishment . . . has left us much to contemplate-indeed, he has made a major contribution to the study of literature and music, to our knowledge of Romanticism and European culture in the early nineteenth century, and to the refinement and coherence of our perception of masterworks of Beethoven and Emily Bronte."
In Emily Brontë and Beethoven, Robert K. Wallace continues to work from the perspective he developed in his Jane Austen and Mozart--integrating two fields that have traditionally been kept apart. Wallace compares Brontë and Beethoven through a close examination of the Romantic traits that their works share. Innovative and stimulating, Wallace's study extends literary criticism into a new context where equilibrium, balance, proportion, and symmetry serve as a fulcrum to launch the reader into a new understanding of the formal parallels, the moods and emotions that connect music and literature.
